Baptist Fellowship Offering Cash Incentives to Churches Considering Female Pastors
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Missouri (CBFMO) will offer cash incentives to any member church that is willing to consider hiring a female pastor.
CBFMO leadership decided in September to pay interview, travel, and other expenses incurred by search committees that include a woman in their list of candidates in hopes of expanding the number of women in church leadership.
None of the 50 CBFMO churches have female senior pastors.

It would appear that FL's link is to a Roman Catholic site and their problems as to "feminization"..... Quote; "You may have noticed that, in general, men are not as interested in religion as women are. There are usually more women than men at Sunday mass, and there are far more women than men at devotions, retreats, and prayer groups. The men who do come are often there because wives or girlfriends have put pressure on them to attend." (Leon Podles)
Anyone for Sunday mass?? Bring your own graven image!!
All 50 member churches are temporarily showing a Biblical attitude on How Women Are to Learn. If their leadership is any indication, it's not respect for the Bible it's just that the opportunity to hire a woman in church leadership roll hasn't presented itself to the membership?
Apparently the seminary that is pushing this idea isn't Biblical. excerpt from the article, "Central Baptist Theological Seminary President Molly Marshall called a meeting with CBFMO leaders‚ÄĒout of concern for finding churches for the seminary's graduates, half of which are women. The Central Baptist Theological Seminary serves the Midwest for the CBF."
